There is an increasing worldwide demand for high-performing materials and their application in sustainable solutions. Solving contemporary challenges is strongly linked to everyday life involving food, packaging, textiles and interiors. Bioeconomy and the industrial use of sustainable chemicals and materials will create growth and wealth and health for our planet.
During the Helsinki Design Week 2017, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is organising an open discussion event where we will address the big questions related to the future of materials and their use in the design of novel solutions. During the two-hour event, we will hear interesting keynotes and a series of pitches by the scientists who are developing the materials of the future and seek ideas to their potential use. We will also showcase several demos on the topic and the evening will be concluded with the award ceremony for the winners of The Making of Tomorrow design hackathon organised earlier during the Helsinki Design Week 2017.
